    Good Morning! This is Elizabeth Battle, principal of North Wake College and Career Academy with announcements for the week.

     We have good news! We have completed the first 10 days. At that point Wake County reconciles student count with teacher allotment. We will gain another teacher! We had 40 students who did not get into Spanish this year, so we are hiring a Spanish teacher part-time. She will start Monday, August 27. We will be changing student schedules the next two days in order to get students into these new classes. They will receive a new schedule in Ready on Friday. We are excited about the opportunity to offer every student Spanish.

     Students received their agendas in Ready this week. Please take a minute to ask your student about it and read the front pages of information provided. Everything you need to know about North Wake is in the agenda. Mr. Riles and I visited every class to hit the highlights with students and to make sure they are receiving a consistent message about school expectations.

     Thank you for wonderful first 10 days! We are off to a fantastic start. Please do hesitate to call or text if you have questions or concerns.
